Spring has Sprung!

Ahhh, yes, that time of year that we have been waiting to see for months is finally here! Sunshine and color are returning to everyday life. Birds are chirping, life is sprouting from the ground and tips of trees limbs! Oh and more light, yes the sunlight for more hours of the day…ahhh it’s so good to have it back!

Spring has sprung in my shop also! I’ve been having so much fun playing with spring colors lately and all of a sudden there seem to be bunnies hopping about everywhere you look!

The bunnies are all around in every size and color! Yes, even a brand new feltidermy too!

In fact yesterday I had a little shop update and added three new feltidermy to the shop!

Lately when I am not stitching I’ve been cooking. Alright it’s not like that’s a new thing…but, I’ve been looking for new things to cook. I finally watched Julie & Julia the other day and Absolutely loved it! It was so sweet, fun and inspiring to watch! Well, it must have been inspiring because here I sit at my desk writing on my little blog to you…if your our there and actually reading this. I had made a resolution to get back to blogging this year, wrote a few posts and then nothing again. I kept trying to think of something to write about and then thinking “Gee, who wants to read that?” and “Is anyone out there really reading this?” and “Wow, why question? Just write!” So here I am writing whether someone is reading or not. So I’ll be back, with new creations to share with you from my studio and my kitchen!

It may seem strange that we have a dog named Julia Child and none of her cookbooks. When I thought this out loud the other night, my Mr reminded me “You don’t like French food.” Oh yeah! I did pull out my Emily Post cookbook from 1951! I think I’ll try to share some recipes from it with you from time to time. Some of recipes are quite good and basic things to cook. Just as enjoyable as the recipes are the tips for throwing  successful dinner parties and other such fun! I could do a whole post on just nuts and when to serve them!

Happy Spring and thanks for stopping by! Oh and if your looking for adorableness for an Easter basket, be sure to stop by my Etsy shop! Have a great day and I’ll see you soon!

Not so good with resolutions…

I’ll be the first to admit it, I’m just not good with resolutions. I made a New Years resolution to get back to blogging. Well, here it February and I’m just now doing my first post of the year. I think maybe I made to many resolutions this year. Blogging, healthier eating, concentrating on the shop and getting it stocked again. I’m happy to admit that I have not been doing too badly on my second and third resolutions. I’m making better choices when it comes to what I put into my mouth. I’ve also been very busy stitching up a storm, trying to get my shop stocked up after the Christmas craziness.

What were your resolutions this year? I would love to hear them!

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you soon! No, really!

P.Nut’s First Adventure!

Friday afternoon when P.Nut and Chippy Prototype heard we were going to Ribfest, they decided it would be great for her first outing.


P.Nut ran and snuggled into my purse and said she was ready for action!


While waiting on the platform, she got very excited for her first ‘L’ ride!


P.Nut thought it was pretty neat that she was the only squirrel on the ‘L’.


The festival was very crowded and everyone was drinking beer. P.Nut was glad that we thought to bring a bottle of water.


Watching all of the ribs getting grilled was fun! P.Nut didn’t eat any of them, she is a vegetarian, but she thought the cheese fries were great!


She really enjoyed seeing a couple bands that she has listened to in the office at home. The Harlem Shakes were fun, but she liked Office the best!

After all of that, it was time to head back home. She couldn’t wait to tell Chippy all about it. P.Nut had so much excitement that she fell asleep on the way home. Telling her adventure would have to wait until morning.


Saturday morning when I got up, I found her in the dining room with Chippy Prototype and Iris. She was having so much fun telling them all about her evening out.

P.Nut can hardly wait for her next adventure! She read something about
Andersonville Midsommarfest in one of the papers, that might be fun…

The new Little Squirrel has a Name!

The new little squirrel has had quite a week. First of all we decided that she is definitely a girl, she’s just too cute not to be! She has had lots of meetings with Chippy about what being the squirrel  about town will involve. She has also spent time meeting all the other plush and feltidermy.


Here she is with the newest feltidermy,  the Medium Eight Point Buck Feltidermy.

We would all like to thank everyone for  submitting their ideas for her name! There was one that stood out to us as soon as we saw it. Thank you to Jessica of  PlushroomSoup, she gave the suggestion of the name P.Nut and is our winner! The name P.Nut really couldn’t be more fitting for this little squirrel!

Thanks again and please stop by tomorrow to see P.Nut’s first adventure to Chicago Ribfest!

Random Good Stuff

Not too much to tell you about today, I finally got 8 hours sleep and I will be putting one of these new plush in the shop later today.


Yesterday on Twitter, Etsy asked people to post their favorites on their blogs. I still can’t seem to figure out how to insert the Etsy Mini in this blog…So instead I’ll give you this, if you haven’t seen it yet. Leslie Hall and some Craft Talk, this song is stuck in my head already.

Thanks for stopping by!

I made black bean and tofu enchiladas last night. They were really yummy! I’ll try to get the recipe written up today so I can post it for you this weekend. It has been warming up around here the past couple days, but it looks like rain for this weekend. If we get our rainy weekend I’ll be posting here and working on new items for the shop…if not, I’ll be out goofing off!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a great weekend!

A trip to the Arctic?


No, just a walk over to Lake Michigan in December. Last weekend we decided to take the dogs for a walk over to the beach near our place. The beach is one of Bean’s favorite places to go, so we thought we would check it out in winter.

boysonice Where the boys are standing in the above picture is usually water.

arcticskyline I like how you can see the Chicago skyline in this one!



Today in Chicago we are in the middle of another snow storm. We’re expected to get 9 inches of snow, on top of the 3 we already had on the ground. I’ve heard that the east coast is supposed to get a storm today too. Wherever you are, stay safe and warm!

In girlsavage news, there are still a few feltidermy available in the shop. I’ve been trying to add new ones for the last week and a half for those who didn’t get custom orders in on time. Oh, and speaking of the arctic, there is a Narwhal Plush in the shop too!


Tomorrow is my last day to ship for Christmas items. Since they are shipped by Priority Mail, shipping tomorrow should still give items plenty of time to arrive by the holiday. I will still ship up until the 23rd before we go visit family for Christmas, but I can’t tell you that they will arrive by Christmas.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Chippy Prototype at Oktoberfest

Last weekend we went up to Hunter Mountain for Oktoberfest with a couple friends. Chippy went along for the fun!

There were lots of people there!

And a band up in front of the lodge. Are they really playing “Sweet Home Alabama” ? This is Oktoberfest in upstate NY, right?

I was too scared of heights, but my husband and our friend The Filmonista took Chippy up on the ski lift to enjoy the view.

Chippy don’t jump, we’re too high up!

Much cozier to be safe in her scarf!

It was getting late in the day, time to get back down to the ground.

Chippy thought they should go to the beer tent after braving the ski lift. Time to take this little squirrel home!

Would you like your own little squirrel to take out on adventures? You can now find this little guy, Acorn the Tiny Squirrel Plush in my shop!

Thanks for stopping by!
